A Facebook user has warned shoppers after he came across vegetable sellers washing their vegetables in a dirty stream.

Chidi Okoye said the women were processing bitter leaf, popularly used by Igbo women to cook bitter leaf soup, with water from a muddy stream in Awka.

He shared photos online to raise awareness about the unhygienic way the vegetable was being processed and advised people who buy the already washed leaves from the market to ensure that they wash again when they go home.
